7 Things You Didn’t Know About Jillian Harris And Justin Pasutto’s Relationship
Jillian Harris first rose to fame as a contestant on the 13th season of The Bachelor. As the second runner up, she was offered the coveted position of being the first Canadian Bachelorette! Afterwards she continued her reality TV fame with a few gigs on HGTV as a designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and later co-host on Love It Or List It Vancouver. Along her journey to success, the former Bachelorette finally met the love of her life, former professional snowboarder and entrepreneur Justin Pasutto. The two welcomed their first child, Leo in August 2016 and just recently landed their own four part docu-series! In honor of all their success, here’s a look at 7 things you might not have known about their cute relationship!
7. How They Met
Jillian and Justin have now been dating for over four years. They first while standing in line outside a Kelowna pub called Roses — how ironic is that? “I’ll never forget the day I met you, outside Roses…it was LOVE at FIRST sight. Actually, though…I remember looking at you and stopping dead in my tracks thinking how on EARTH could I snag you that night. I succeeded and ended up snagging you for life, talk about winning the lottery,” she wrote in a post on her blog. Now they’ve bought and renovated their dream home, welcomed their first child together and are engaged!
6. Age Gap
There’s quite a big age gap between Jillian and Justin. She’s eight years older than him, but that doesn’t seem to affect their relationship at all! “I was 32 when we met, and Justin was a fresh ripe 24. BTW I SWEAR he told me he was 27, which I rounded up to 28…so in my mind we were basically the same age HA,” she wrote on her blog. “Our age difference was never really an issue for us, our love was always strong and very real and that’s all that mattered. But truth be told, I could have gotten knocked up with his baby on that second date and I probably would have been over the moon…haha…ok MAYBE too soon, but I WAS smitten.”
